BOTHERS THE BEST OF 'EM, The Question of Liquor Legislation at the Coming Session—What Shall It Be? J. H. Funk Defines Mis Position—Synopses of Proposed Local Option and Mulct Tax Bills. J. H. Funk, who has campaigned in Kossuth county, and who is ono of the most vigorous and able men elected to the coming legislature, has defined his position on liquor legislation: Editor Sentinel: A question having arisen as to my position on the temperance plank of the republican stale platform and as 1 believe the people have a right to know the attitude of all candidates for legislative and judicial position upon this question, I will state that as a republican I stand squarely upon the platform as I understand and interpret it. To my mind the platform nowhere favors the re-establishment of the legalized saloon. Surely that portion of it that declares in favor of the maintenance of the present law cannot be thus distorted and as to those portions of the state where the present law is found to be inoperative by reason of democratic majorities setting the law at naught, it cannot by any t fair interpretation be claimed that giving to these localities, " such methods of controlling and regulating the liquor traffic as will best serve the cause of temperance and morality," means surrender to the lawles_s elements of those communities and giving them the lawful right to do what they are now doing in open and flagrant violation of law. No party can thus openly encourage violation of law by yielding to the demands of the law breaker without forfeiting the respect of every honest man. Therefore a fair and reasonable interpretation of the clause in question is to give additional means of enforcement to those localities where the present means are found to be inadequate. As to whether that shall be the mulct law, which has been found to work so well in Ohio in closing 1 5,000 saloons during the first year of its existance, supplemented, perhaps, by a law making municipalities liable in damages to any party injured either in person or property by reason of the traffic being suffered to exist within such municipality, or some other method squally efficacious, will be a question for the com- ng legislature to determine. That this will not be local option in the event of a republican triumph in this state, I am well satisfied. All that prohibition has ever gained in Iowa it has gained through the republican party, and I have too much faith in the integrity of the men composing that party to believe that they will now stultify themselves by surrendering to the lawless elements in our state. Individually, I lived too long in a local option state to believe that a licensed saloon will " best serve the cause of temperance and morality", and if elected shall resist to the utmost of my powers its reinstatement in Iowa. I need not here enter into a discuSsion of my reasons for this determination. They have been given at length from every rostrum from which I have spoken in Iowa during the last three political campaigns, and do not need recapitulation here. My views upon this question were well known at the time of my nomination and the unanimity of that nomination, unsought as it was, assures mo that thf republicans of Hardin county are in accord with these views. In a short address delivered before our last county convention, I promised the people there assembled that " no vote of mine should ever be given that would enable a saloon to cast its blighting shadow in Hardin county," and I certainly propose to stand by that pledge though it lead to my defeat. I had rather bo defeated and maintain my self respect and that of my neighbors, than to win through deception or self- abasement. J. H. FUNK. A L,ocal Option Bill. Spencer Smith of Council Bluffs, who was mainly instrumental in getting the final clause of the republican platform adopted, has a two column local option bill In last Friday's Register. As he is an able lawyer and was a leader of the local option forces it is safe to assume that this bill will cut some figure in the coming session. The essential provision of the bill is in part as follows: " Upon the presentation to the board of supervisors of any county in the stats of Iowa a petition signed by two-fifths in number of the qualified electors whose names appear on the poll books of the last preceding general election, requesting such board of supervisors to submit the question whether or not alcoholic, spirituous, inalt. and vinous liquors may be manufactured and sold as a beverage therein, under the regulations and restrictions of this act, it shall be the duty of the board of supervisors to order a special election, at which election the question shall be voted upon as to whether such county will permit the manufacture and sale of alcoholic liquors, ale, wine, or beer as a beverage therein, under the conditions and restrictions provided in this act; and the ballots cast at such an election shall be in the following words: ' Shall alcoholic liquors, ale, wine, or beer be manufactured aud sold in this county as a beverage?' " The present law is to remain unchanged except as these elections may change it by counties, and they can only be held once in five years. After an election, application for permits must be made to the court ten days before term, notice must be published in the papers, a $1,000 bond must be filed, then a permit with twelve regulations and rules of conduct is granted. The fee is $500 in towns and townships, and $1,000 in cities, to go to the schooHund. The man getting a license must be a bona fide resident; of the town or towa ship he desires to deal in. A great many minor provisions are added. This is the essence of the bill. A Mulct Tnx Bill. In the Daily Capital appears the draft of a mulct tax law to be added to the present law. The purpose of this tax is to put a fine on saloons run contrary to law. It allows cities to collect $50 or $100 a month from illegal saloons and for that month they are to be free from other prosecution. But at any other time they can be closed. This mulct tax will have a following in the legislature, and this bill presents its main features. The chief provision is: " That any city or Incorporated town in this stnto having a population of inhabitants by the lust preceding census, state or national, bo and is hereby authorized and empowered to provide by ordinance for tho assessment and levy of a fine of not less than $50 nor more than $100 and costs of prosecution against any person or persons not holding a permit from the district court, who for the period of thirty days or loss shall upon Conviction bo found within tho Jurisdiction of said city or town engaged in keeping a place for tho sale of intoxicating liquors or In keeping such intoxicating liquors for sale or soiling any such liquors within the said jurisdiction or who shall confess to the mayor of any city or incorporated town that he is about to do any of tho above-named things, for a period not to exceed thirty clays. That on tho assessment in good faith by the mayor or police judge of any such line either on conviction or on confession as aforesaid and on payment thereof the same shall bo a bar to any other prosecutions under tho provisions of Statute for such acts done or committed within such city at tho place named within said period of thirty days, except for sales to minors, intoxicated persons, or persons in the habit of becoming intoxicated." Any saloon man selling to minors, etc., cannot plead that ho has paid his tax to prevent being closed up. One- half the fines go to tho town and one- half to tho county.

Too High Pressure. In these days of keen competition in every line, when the business man is compelled to bend his intellect and every energy to the success of his business; the clerk, bookkeeper, professional man and labdrer, to drive IhuniKelves at a terrific rate, there can bo but ono result—an explosion, which, if not. resulting in immediate death, leaves thorn with shailered brains and bodies. They are running at too high pressure. The strain is too great. Something must and does give way. This is equally true of women. Though their sphere is more li i.iicd, they have their daily burdens, frets, am! worries, and the results are the same as Tviih their stronger companions. Tliirs condition is growing worse every day. The rapidity of its increase is awful to ciintemplate. Our homes, hospitals, and insane nHyluniBnrefullof these unfortunates, and are b'cifig crowded still further. There is but one solution of the matter. Recognize the importance of the situation at once, and take the necessary measures to overcome it. If you have failing memory, hot flashes, dizziness, nervous or sick headache, biliousness, irritability, melancholy, sleeplessness, fainting, nervous dyspepsia, epilepsy, etc., know that anyone of them is but a symptom of the calamity that may befall you, and even though you have used so- called remedies and treated with reputable physicians with little or no benefit, give Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine a 'trial. It is the only remedy that may be depended upon for nervous disorders. " Two years ago I used Dr. Miles' Rcntoratlvo Nervine with marked benefit, and later induced my son, who had been sick with catarrh of the bladder five years in the hands of our best physicians, to try it together with Dr. Miles' Nerve and Liver Pills, lie was BO wonderfully benefited that he in attending to business again. My wife altfo used Nervine with most excellent result* All of us together have not used more than six bottles of Nervine. Several of our friends hnve atnr> used it, and are greatly improved."—Louis Qibbs, Bueher & Qibbs Plow Co., Canton, Ohio.

Water Sets, Chamber Sets, Glassware, AND CROCKERY, All new and the latest patterns, at Langdon & Hudson's. T HERE are a few people who buy whatever they fancy without a thought as to quality or price. Another class who look at price alone. And still another, and by far the greater, who look at both quality and price, and to this class Economical Dry Goods has a different meaning from either of the others. Quality cuts more of a figure than price, and to all such we extend a cordial invitation to come in and see what we have to offer. IN DRESS GOODS we should like you to see the all-wool Hen- riettas in black and colors, made by the Botany mills; (these mills took the highest award at the World's Fair); while in quality and finish they are perfection, in price they are so low that the most economically inclined are gratified. Also other dress goods in wool, half-wool, and mixed. A good assortment of Heavy Suitings, Flannels, and cloth for children's clothes. A line of the well-known North Star Mills' flannels and blankets* pleasing in both quality and price. IN TABLE LINENS, Napkins, Towels, Crashes, and all this line of goods our assortment and prices are acknowledged the best, and the quality always as represented. At this season Men's, Women's, and Children's Underwear and Hosiery are in constant demand. We have given this department especial attention and are assured that we have the goods and the prices to please. A line of the well-known German Knitting Yarn in all grades ; Gloves,'Mittens, Overalls, and the usual line of Notions found in a Dry Goods Store. IF WE MENTION CARPETS last, it is not because they are in anyway least; the fact that the Carpet department, established five years ago, has more than doubled in volume each success- .ive season speaks in praise of the goods and the manner in which this department is handled. Our plan of selling only by sample offers many advantages over stock lots. We sell only first-rdass makes. We offer HO old stock. No damaged or soiled goods. No out-of-date styles. Each season (twice a year) our samples are assorted, old styles thrown out and new ones added. We have about 400 samples on hand, all grades, thus allowing you to select from a $300,000.00 stock. About three- fourths of these samples cut without waste, often making a saving of several yards on a carpet. We cut and make all carpets without additional cost, and deliver them to you at a price you will often pay for inferior makes and older styles, Lace and Chenille Curtains are handled in much the same manner as carpets. We can get you the lowest-priced article made, or the very finest. Mattings, Oil Cloth, Rugs, Curtain Poles, etc., we have cons'tantly on hand. WE BELIEVE that an inspection of any of the above goods will prove our first assertion that economical dry goods consists of quality rather than price. The Grange Store. I Am Here. i MOD? In the dark un^ less you come into the open light to see my new and neat stock of Drugs, Perfumes, and Surir dries. Try me. Studley, The New
